Skyfoot: Astronomy Man

Skyfoot is a four-piece jam band from Boston, MA. They have been making music in the North East for years, but they caught my attention when they released their fourth full-length album, Astronomy Man. The eleven-track album was recorded at Rotary Records in western Massachusetts this past winter and spring. I was immediately captivated by the beginning of “Wat’cha Gonna Do,” the first track on the record because it has this bouncy Americana thing that I drift to, and the vocals stand out to me also.

The venue did an incredible job of enforcing social distancing while still creating such a unique musical experience.

The Allman Betts Band Delivered in Pennsylvania

Words by

The Allman Betts Band continued their “Bless Your Heart” tour in Bethel, PA on Friday. The Pat Garret Amphitheater is way out there. The venue is comprised of a huge stage in a wide-open field with luscious green grass. It is surrounded by farms and forest and we stood under a sparkling starry sky. It was set up for social distancing and there were grids clearly marked. Everyone was happy with plenty of space to enjoy the feels. I was happy to see that all of the guidelines were being followed, and it felt close to normal. We have been lucky to have music during the time of Covid but in some cases that “feeling” is rare. I felt that “feeling” on Friday night.

Danny Mayer talks new single “Soquel” and Wildfires

We spoke to our friend Danny Mayer about the release of OTS (On The Spot) Trio’s latest single “Soquel”. The release marks the second single the band has released in 2020, along with the fun and up-beat track “Hefe” released in April. The song shares a retro, funky, psychedelic vibe that has become a characteristic of Mayer’s ensembles. OTS has been morphing and evolving for the last 14 years, but this latest single was born back in Santa Cruz and circumstance will have it that its release correlates to the terrible wildfires that have engulfed much of the area.
